Is Strattec Security Corporation under- or over-valued?

That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Strattec Security Corporation's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Strattec Security Corporation shares can be evaluated.

Strattec Security Corporation's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Strattec Security Corporation's SIR currently stands at 0.13. In other words for every 100,000 Strattec Security Corporation shares traded daily on the market, roughly 130 shares are currently held short.

However Strattec Security Corporation's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Strattec Security Corporation shares, or, against the total number of tradable Strattec Security Corporation shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Strattec Security Corporation's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Strattec Security Corporation shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0019% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Strattec Security Corporation shares, roughly 2 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Strattec Security Corporation.

In Strattec Security Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.14 per share.

While Strattec Security Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Strattec Security Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Strattec Security Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 26 March 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 March 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
